French shipyard CMN confirms major order by Mozambique including 6 Patrol Vessels & Interceptors
 

CMN confirms the signing of a major export contract with Mozambique. The contract signed September 5th, 2013 is historic for CMN both in terms of number of ships and the variety of vessels. The contract includes the delivery of three OCEAN EAGLE 43 trimaran patrol vessels, three HSI 32 interceptors and eighteen fishing vessels for a total of twenty-four ships. The implementation of this agreement will generate a two years work load.

Both type of military vessels are innovative concepts developped by CMN R&D department in 2013.

OCEAN EAGLE 43

The OCEAN EAGLE 43 is a revolutionary concept with exceptional performance designed to meet the needs of maritime surveillance and security. The OCEAN EAGLE 43 is the result of a fruitful collaboration between CMN, naval architect Nigel Irens, ProLarge and SeaTeam Aviation companies, two small businesses specialized in logistics and operational projects at sea.

The OCEAN EAGLE 43 is a compact high-performance multifunction vessel that is suited to protect coastal areas, strategic offshore infrastructures. It can also conduct electronic warfare and intelligence missions through the use of 300 Kg class VTOL UAV (such as the SCHIEBEL S100 Camcopter).

The OCEAN EAGLE 43 offers an unmatched cost to performance ratio:
» 3,000 nautical miles autonomy at 20 knots
» Top speed of 30 knots sustainable over a distance of 1,000 nautical miles
» Limited crew of 7 sailors
» Accomodations for 8 additional Special Forces
     
The OCEAN EAGLE 43 is derived from OCEAN EAGLE 40
which was first unveiledat IDEX/NAVDEX 2013
     
The OCEAN EAGLE 43 is fitted with self-defense capabilities consisting in a 20 mm or 30 mm remote weapons station plus two 12.7 mm machine guns with 360° coverage. A ramp at the stern allows the rapid deployment and recovery of a 7 meters RHIB.

In terms of electronic warfare, the OCEAN EAGLE 43 comes with advanced detection and surveillance sensors:
» C-ESM
» Electro-optical sensors
» Surveillance radar
» Navigation radar
» Satcom datalink for image, video and tactical data upload and download

All sensors are fused and integrated with the Combat Management System and the Integrated Navigation System.

HSI 32

HSI 32 is designed to meet the needs of modern Navies and Coast Guards. The HSI 32 is a fast interceptor which combines significant intelligence and surveillance capacities with high speed (45 knots) and extended patrol period of 3 days.

CMN has sought to develop a versatile interceptor, efficient and easy to use for conducting anti-piracy, anti-terrorism, or control of illicit trafficking missions.

The HSI 32 has a range of 800 nautical miles (approximately) with a crew of only 12 sailors. This new advanced interceptor comes with a RHIB launching ramp at the stern and a 360° bridge.

The HSI 32 is fitted with self-defense capabilities including a 20 mm remote weapon system plus two 12.7 mm machine guns with a field of 360° coverage.

In terms of electronic warfare, the HSI 32 comes with advanced detection and surveillance sensors:
» C-ESM
» Electro-optical sensors
» Surveillance radar
» Navigation radar
» Satcom datalink for image, video and tactical data upload and download

All sensors are fused and integrated with the Combat Management System and the Integrated Navigation System.
